Does any1 know of some1 who puts red or white walls on tyres.
Ive seen it done were they take a groove from the side wall and inlay the colour into the groove , i used to have a card of a guy who did it but lost it many years ago.
Im restoring an XC GXL 351 back to origional condition and would love red walls on the stock rims for that muscle car feeling.

Please help.

I think they stopped making red wall tyres about 2 years after I bought my GTHO circa 1972 :roll: :D

think i remember them saying that if they could be illegal due to the cutting of the sidewall or something? :?:
